Saving the American Church

Justice Conference

I was in Australia meeting with several Evangelical leaders in areas of justice a couple weeks back talking about The Justice Conference when someone asked me what my heart was in founding the conference.

I wrestled for a way to sum up a lot of the thoughts, feelings and intentions and answered by saying, “The goal is to try and save the American Church from American Culture.”

I’m learning that my greatest frustration is the consumerism that is such a part of American life and my greatest passion is what I believe it can look like if we truly follow Christ and give our lives away.  Giving our lives away is not only the opposite of selfishness and, paradoxically, how we find our greatest joy, but also one way we acknowledge Christ (Mat 25:40) and worship God (Rom. 12:1).

The Justice Conference gets me excited because it has the potential of both affecting change in the world as well as having a redemptive effect on those who attend.

Saving the American Church from American Culture… turning consumerism into compassion… moving from selfishness into a willingness to give our lives away on behalf of others to the glory of God.
